Question: Is Aoi Hana likely to be released on American DVD? And how successful does it seem to be, relative to other yuri anime? Answer: Regrettably, I don’t have an answer for this question.

Bleach - Chapter 377  

2009-10-13 10:43

Darknives - Bleach

Shout At The Dark

Bleach 377

Kensei goes Bankai to take care of Wonderweiss. I guess he was feeling left out, being the only to not use part of his real power.

Anyway, on to Aizen. He manages to provoke Hiyori and Gin takes her out. It was all done very stylishly. Hirako catches her. He remembers Ohirime and shouts for Ichigo to come back already. But, for now, it really seems like Hiyori will die.

Anyway, after the shout, somewhere, Ichigo is seen dashing down. I got a little confused as to his location but, he’s probably still in Hueco Mundo and I think the plot is going to shift there again at this point. Can’t wait to see Ichigo’s new strength and him fighting back Yammi.

Bleach 377

About Kensei and Wonderweiss, not sure if that blast was supposed to kill Wonderweiss or if we will still see their battle. Although I doubt it, now that all Arrancars have been dismissed as threats. Also, now that I think about, Yammi and Ulquiorra were the most powerful Arrancars. Yammi being number 0 and Ulquiorra achieving a second resurrection.. Aizen brought the wrong ones to the real world lol.

Nice chapter, I’m hoping to get back to Hueco Mundo next and see Yammi’s fight.

Naruto Shippuuden - Episode 129 & 130  

2009-10-13 10:28

Darknives - Naruto Shippuuden

Infiltrating Amegakure
Jiraya’s Decision

Naruto Shippuuden 129-130

The special starts with a little recap on the whole series, focusing on Sasuke and Naruto’s will, handed down to him by Jiraya. Anyway, Jiraya infiltrates the Hidden Rain but, Pain notices immediately. Later on, Jiraya confirms that Hanzou, the powerful Rain leader has been defeated by Pain and that the constant rain is in fact Pain’s jutsu. This just goes to show how damn strong he must be.

Jiraya captures some genins for interrogation and new awesome OP appears. About the song, not much to my personal taste but, the video itself is awesome. Really well animated, really stylish with a lot of brutal scenes about some stuff to come, always without being too much of a spoiler for those that don’t now.

Naruto Shippuuden 129-130

Back to the episode and by the way, "Konan" said out loud sounds really funny in Portuguese. Anyway, Jiraya sends the Kyuubi’s seal key to Naruto, in case he dies. More theories about the first Kyuubi’s attack and a lot of stuff are shown. This is scene made me remember something important concerning the current developments of the manga, about "that" jutsu Jiraya mentions.

Anyway, they talk, Nagato explains his plans. Whatever happened to Nagato, really changed him. It doesn’t look like Jiraya will try to talk him down anymore, he’s just going to try to defeat/kill him. Can’t wait for the fight.

Naruto Shippuuden 129-130

The animation really surprised me, the whole episode had beautiful art and nice animation. I hope the rest of the fight gets this treatment, because it will be epic.

I liked the ED, not much for the music but, the art was cool.

Naruto Shippuuden 129-130

This was an awesome episode, even with the minor filler. The next one seems on par with Sasuke’s fight with Deidara, really can’t wait.

  • Next Episode: Activate! Sage Mode

Naruto Shippuuden 129-130
